Global Leadership is defined as "...leading people who are based in multiple regions of the world."
Global Leaders have to engage in very diverse groups of stakeholders and colleagues to get things done. They lead people across distance, cultures, time zones, and in complex organizational structures such as a matrix or even a networked organizational structure.
Global Leaders need to create a good understanding of where it adds value to be universal and where it is better to be local (e.g., global-local dilemma) They need the leadership style flexibility to lead people with different expectations about leadership, but also the resilience and authenticity to stand for something.
Leading globally is a big step up in complexity, and people need to develop the mindset and skillset required to succeed in this complex VUCA-(Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, Ambiguity) Environment.
F7) Rewarding and Feedback
Global Leaders know how to reward and compensate their people, and they work to ensure that the reward systems are fair. They celebrate achievements, both large and small, and reward outstanding performance appropriately. They mentor their people, giving constructive, positive feedback as smiles and praise.
